Hi everyone.
I setup a server called TS2 and I need to rename it CRM2.
The server doesn't do anything right now. Is it as simple as renaming it just how I would rename it if it were a workstation?
The domain name is not changing.

    Renaming should be a problem at at.  Just make sure that after the renaming you remove the old DNS records that point to TS2.

    It should be that simple as long as it is not a DC and you do not have any special software installed. i.e. some backup software will have a problem if the server is renamed when installed since there are some palces in the registry with the old name.

    If it is generic, then you should be ok.
